Jackson, WY: where to eat, sleep, & play

Our last stop on our road trip was Jackson, Wyoming.  While we stayed less than 24 hours, we did get a little time to explore and have a nice meal in the fun little town!

Eat:  

The Blue Lion had local fare like wild caught fish and venison.  I especially loved the sign at the front door that politely asked for cell phones to not be visible on the table!  Although that did hinder my foodie photography on the iPhone, it was very invigorating just to see others sitting and visiting over a good meal while we did the same.

Sleep:  
It was our first time staying in a bed and breakfast, which was really a great experience!  The Inn was so beautiful- and the breakfast was delicious.

Play: Explore the Town

The fur store had really neat belt buckles, so of course Chase needed a souvenir.  We also made sure to hit up the fossil store because of recommendations we had heard- it was very impressive!  And just strolling around downtown was entertainment enough- I loved the window display of a local florist shop.  There were painted clothespins strung up and it reminded me of Anthro!

So that makes up our trip!  It was so fun and makes me want to plan another road trip.  Where is your favorite road trip?

Road Trip Stops: South Dakota and Wyoming

After Minneapolis, we started making our way back West.  On a last minute whim, we decided to make a stop at Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse memorial.  That’s the beauty of a road trip, right?  You can change your plans and make unexpected stops.  I love it!  Mount Rushmore was a little cloudy but it was amazing how even when the faces were completely hidden in the clouds, everything became visible in just a few minutes!

Crazy Horse Museum and Monument: (the wood work of the museum was beautiful)IMG_0174 IMG_0175 IMG_0176

Custer, South Dakota: We stopped for a bite after seeing the monuments at a little place called the Sage Creek Grille.  We loved the drive through the Black Hills- what gorgeous country!

Ten Sleep Canyon, Wyoming:  Seriously BREATHTAKING!IMG_0187 IMG_0196 IMG_0201 IMG_0210 IMG_0215

Right outside of the canyon is the little town of Ten Sleep, which has a cute little coffee shop.  I could definitely live in Ten Sleep- it was adorable.
